Paper Abstract

Target truth data collected during field tests are extremely important in characterizing the performance of electro-optical (EO) sensor systems. Target truth, scene characterization, and meteorological data are all used to document the specific conditions of test during the evaluation of a sensor. These data are often used to support the determination of specification compliance or noncompliance for a candidate sensor system. This paper describes the method used to collect airborne target truth data in support of the United States Air Force limited development test and evaluation (DT&E) of the Advanced Tactical Air Reconnaissance System (ATARS).
